X-Crafts has today announced to the community that they’re currently working on the Embraer ERJ family jets as their follow-up to their E-Jets product, released as a version 2 refresh around 18 months ago.
The ERJ Family product line will include all three of the Embraer models under the ERJ umbrella; the E135, E140 and the E145, and there is also the hope from the development team that they’ll be able to expand on this by also including the E145XR model – an eXtra-long Range model designed with a range of 2,000nm.
In the announcement post on X-Plane.org, X-Crafts say that they’re confident that the modelling and texturing in this product will be something special, “push these X-Plane add-ons to the next level”. They also expect the systems and avionics to be as detailed, if not more, than their E-Jets product, saying that they’re looking to use a modified Tekton FMS system in order to bring the system depth to that level.
While they are certain about the direction that they’re wanting to take this product, X-Crafts do stress that there is no ETA or release date in sight as of the announcement. For now, we’ve been left with some work-in-progress screenshots to wet our appetites. Check out the screenshots below.
